Tips and rumours

Deloitte not inexperienced with donations ... Surprise! Defence think-tank likes data retention ... DFAT plays real life Monopoly ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

AGL auditors know about donations. Energy giant AGL has decided to call in external auditors as it watches ICAC continue to uncover secret payments and dodgy donations to the New South Wales Liberal Party, but one tipster has found AGL’s choice of auditor noteworthy. AGL has called in consultants Deloitte to check its political donations for errors and omissions — but Deloitte itself is not unfamiliar with the donations game. Over the years, Deloitte has been one of the biggest donors to the Millennium Forum, a company set up by the Liberals that ICAC found earlier this year was used to funnel dodgy donations into the 2011 NSW election campaign. Perhaps ICAC should be asking an easier question — who hasn’t made a donation to a political party in NSW?
